I have a hex grid and a game object, let's say it's the player. What I want to do is know on which cell the player is on based on his world position, this would be easy on a simple grid but on a hex grid it's giving me a headache.


Maybe this useful and complete article may help you : https://www.redblobgames.com/grids/hexagons/

There's 4 different possibilities for implementing an hexagrid. Depending on your "offset coordinates". For each type the article explains how you can convert position to hex coordinate.

And good luck, I had to implement such system too before this article ever existed ^^
